The Google Charleston East Development by BIG Bjarke Ingels Group and Heatherwick Studios in Mountain View, California follows a modular and scalable building technology. BIG describes the project as grounded in the architecture group’s core principal of bold architecture. It is also supposed to reflect the culture of innovation Google’s mother company Alphabet stands for. The main aims of the project are to foster a sense of community while integrating nature and design a model community for the Silicon Valley.
